The third annual Moth Ball, a "costume-dress-up" dance to benefit the Senoia Area Historical Society, was held on July 25 at the Historic Veranda Inn.

Veranda owners Laura and Rick Reynolds offered their grounds and DJ Ray McKnight played just the right music to make the evening memorable, said historical society representatives. Guests danced, ate, and mingled under the stars on a beautiful summer evening.

Many dressed in fun attire, and this year even the gentlemen got in the spirit.

Hors d'oeuvres were offered in a buffet arrangement where guests could help themselves before sitting at tables decorated with brown paper and cotton lace. Guests danced to sentimental songs of the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s, and even fun numbers like "YMCA" were among the playlist.

Lori Kolbenschlag, the 2013 Moth Ball Queen, wearing a blue sequined and satin vintage dress, crowned 2014 Queen Janis Anderson.

Anderson went all out with her outfit, including the saddle shoes she purchased for the event.

Her "king," Bob, sported an Elvis wig and leather jacket to complete the winning look. 

Next up, the society will celebrate the time-honored southern tradition of afternoon tea on Saturday, Aug. 23 at 2 p.m. The "Summer Tea on the Porch" event will be held at the historic Pearman home at 291 Pylant St.

Guests will enjoy scones and cream, sweets and savories. Senoia Area Historical Society invites the community to come recreate the grace of long ago, the charm of a leisurely time with friends. Bring a special tea cup and share its history.

Dress up, if you'd like. Hats and gloves are encouraged. A prize will be awarded to the loveliest hat.

Tickets are available through Nancy Roy at 770-599-6321. Seats are limited and reservations are needed by Aug. 16. There will be no tickets at the door for this event.
